Incorrect spelling, explanation: a lot of English words contain double consonants. It is no different in the case of the word approach – to spell it correctly, we need to double the -p letter. Some, however, forget about it and write it incorrectly – as
aproach. You can associate this verb/noun with similar words: appear or apparent.
Correct spelling, explanation: the word approach is used as both a noun and a verb. It should be spelled with the double -p letter, because it comes from the Latin word appropriare which means go nearer to. You should remember that
aproach is an incorrect version and it should be avoided. Pay attention when spelling this word in order not to make any mistakes. Approach is the only right form.
